How do I allow or deny websites or custom keywords?

Follow

The Securly admin console lets you allow or deny additional websites/domains or keywords in addition to those in the Securly database. You can either add these domains and keywords at the global level or at individual policy level.

Global level settings

Any domains or keywords added to the Global Allow or Deny list here will be applicable to the entire user base.

  1. Login to your Securly admin console
  2. Navigate to Policy Editor > Global Settings > Allow/Deny and add the domains or keywords there.

Use the following formats when adding to the list

  1. Domain - abc.com
  2. Subdomain - *.abc.com
  3. Keyword - *keyword* (Note that this will allow you to block/allow specific keywords without compromising the overall filtering policy for that category of words.)

Policy level settings

Any domains or keywords added to the Allow or Deny list here will be applicable only to users who have been assigned that particular policy.

  1. Login to your Securly admin console
  2. Navigate to Policy Editor and select the policy for which you want to add to the Allow/Deny list.

Use the following formats when adding to the list

  1. Domain - abc.com
  2. Keyword - *keyword*

Note the Default Policy does not have an allow list by design. The Default Policy should be your most strict policy.  If you would like to allow some for the default policy, instead add it to the Global allow.

You can also write to us and submit domains to be added to the Securly database.
